Re: Help

I know what's up, when you put the power wires back in, you got them reversed. I'm talking about the wires that get screwed in by the piece with the 2 prongs that hold the ESC board down...switch those. That happened to me the first time I rebuilt my Z. Make sure the positive (red) wire is on the spur gear side of the car, and the negative (black) wire is on the non-spur gear side of the car.

If that's not your problem, I'll be a monkey's uncle.

Re: tried

Ummm, well, u got me there...I hope you didn't burn anything up if you left it on too long with reversed polarity flowing through the board. A soon as I saw mine wasn't working right, I pretty much knew what was up, so I switched the wires and all was good, but if it's still doing the same thing, I don't know what else to tell ya, sorry dude, I did what I could If I think of something else, I'll tell you first thing.
